What is the Coach Intensive?​

The Coach Intensive is an 8-hour, small-group coaching experience designed to help instructional coaches and teacher leaders who are looking for support and answers questions about the work you do. This is for those looking for something other than just another training, webinar, or workshop. This Intensive is for coaches and teacher leaders who want an authentic, conversational-style learning experience that takes you deeper into content with robust discussion and dialogue aligned with developing the art and craft of coaching.

​You won't find slide presentations or a formal environment here, but what you will find is a safe space for you to express your concerns, share your wins, and find possible solutions to your challenges and concerns that will change your practice. To achieve this, the Coach Intensive weaves each of the following concepts throughout all meetings.

Benefits & Outcomes

You will change your coaching through conversations and activities embedded throughout the Intensive. You will develop your art and craft of instructional coaching by:

  1. Gaining confidence, motivation, and inspiration to upskill your coaching by bringing to light what's really within you!
  2. Increasing your confidence by exploring resources and tools for instructional coaching.
  3. Nurturing your confidence by adapting, designing, and reshaping your current instructional coaching practices.
  4. Learning how to handle your personal coaching challenges.

We will explore many parts of coaching during our time together. No two cohorts will be the same because the Coach Intensive combines what YOU bring to the table, your individual experiences, and combines them with the coaching experience, skills and knowledge that I bring to the table. In essence, you're learning path is designed by you in real-time. 

Here Are The Details
